STUBBS, George engraved by George Townly STUBBS
London: Published by Edward Orme, 1817.London: Published by Edward Orme, 1817. A breathtaking print of Lord Grosvenor's famous racehorse Protector, by George Stubbs, England's most famous equine painter. George Stubbs is considered one of the greatest English painters. His ingenious animal and sporting pictures remain unrivalled in their passionate depiction of emotion and their commitment to naturalistic observation. Stubbs was briefly apprenticed to the painter Hamlet Winstanley, a relationship that quickly ended, leaving the young artist to his own tuition. In contrast to contemporary academic theory, Stubbs' attached great importance to the belief that art should imitate nature, not the work of other artists. He spent years carefully studying human and equine anatomy so that he could truthfully represent natural form and movement. A result of this study was his famous 'Anatomy of the Horse', which details, with beautiful engraving, the various elements of a horse's anatomy, from skeletal form to muscular definition. Continuing in search of innovation, Stubbs began experimenting with a myriad of different mediums, becoming accomplished in both enamels and printmaking. Through arduous application, he became a talented mezzotint engraver and worked with ease in both soft ground, and etching techniques. Stubbs' masterful paintings inspired some of the greatest engravers of the day to reproduce his work for publication, including his own son George Townly Stubbs who reproduced with faithful accuracy the sublime emotion inherent in his father's … [Click Below for Full Description]

CURTIS, W.
1817. A new edition, enlarged by George Graves and William Jackson Hooker. London, Henry G. Bohn, [1817-] 1835. 5 volumes. Large-folio (481 x 290mm). With 659 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates on 647 leaves. Contemporary green half morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lettering, topedges gilt. A reissue of the second, much enlarged edition. The second edition was published from 1817-1828. "Henry Bohm took over the remaining copies of this second edition and issued them in 1835 with new title-pages, carrying the date 1835" (Stafleu & Cowan 1286). The first three volumes contain the original 432 plates, but the text rewritten by Hooker. The final two volumes are entirely new, with the plates mostly from drawings by Hooker, together with his own descriptions. The impressive 'Flora Londinensis' is much more comprehensive in scope than its title suggests, for it embraces most of the English flora, and as a result of which it should be properly regarded as the first colour-plate national flora. "Curtis adopted the novel plan of having specimens drawn to a uniform scale and to life size, and most of the plates display a high degree of accuracy. In the opinion of Salisbury, the majority of the figures 'represent the most successful portrayals of British wild flowers that have ever been achieved'" (Henry II, p. 67). The fine plates are by James Sowerby, Sydenham Edwards, and Hooker. William Curtis is one of the great names in botany, the present work and his famous 'Botanical Magazine' are landmarks in English botany. Restored marginal tear to title page of 5th volume … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jan Florián Hammerschmidt (1652-1737), Jan Hýbl
Prague: Bohumil Háze (Gottlieb Haase), 1817. Octavo (20 × 16 cm). Original self-wrappers with brown paper spine strip; [3], 15 pp. Printed in Latin and Czech, with the latter set in a Fraktur font. Lightly dust-soiled; spine strip worn; small nick to right margin of p. 1; old vertical crease to text. First (separate?) edition of this satire in verse on the Czech national character from the Baroque period, the most famous literary work by J. F. Hammerschmidt (1652-1737), the Czech historian, writer, and priest. In addition to his historical and theological explorations, Hammerschmidt wrote numerous lighter works of satirical nature. He was known for his refusal to write and preach in German, using only Czech and Latin. This work playfully alternates Czech and Latin words, sometimes creating new words from a Latin and Czech morpheme each, respectively set in Fraktur and Antiqua fonts. The title page indicates that this poem was "issued" in 1715, but we cannot locate any such a publication, suggesting this to be the first edition, or possibly the first stand-alone edition. The KVK and OCLC catalogs show only the copy at the Czech National Library (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin holds the second edition, 1829).

"written in 1816 after he had become the outspoken critic of the Tory ministry and all its policies, foreign and domestic. It was designed to show that the defeats suffered by Great Britain during the War of 1812 were due to the incompetence and extravagance of the government in London.This was a favorite theme of Cobbett at the time and he was fond of contrasting the Tory leadership with the rather idealized picture that he had of the honest and homespun American statesmen. It is not surprising that an American publisher brought out an edition of this work."- Recent Acquisitions of the William Cobbett Collection in the Rutgers University Library by John W. Osborne. "In the form of letters written by 'an Englishman in England'. Designed to help American youth feel patriotic and proud of the record of their country in the War of 1812." - The War of 1812: An Annotated Bibliography by John Grodzinski. Condition: Very good.

Houbigant, Armand Gustave.
1817. Folio. (4), 20 pp. text. With wood-engraved illustration on title page and 50 numbered lithographed plates in the publisher's hand colour. Modern half calf, with part of the original lithographed wrappers mounted on front. Printer's issue of the rare first edition of a series of hand-coloured views of Russian customs and costumes, executed by the French artist Armand Gustave Houbigant (1789-1862) in collaboration with the artist Hippolyte Bellangé and the early experimental lithographer Charles de Lasteyrie. With 20 pages of letterpress text giving descriptions of the plates. Most of the plates are (in part) copies from Atkinson's "A picturesque representation of the manners, customs, and amusements of the Russians" (1803-04), but are here executed in typical chalk lithographs instead of Atkinson's aquatints. - Regular issues were printed with the names of the publishers: Paris, Treuttel & Wurtz, and Strasbourg, "même maison de commerce". A second edition was published in 1821, and 30 of the plates were published in "Recueil de trente croquis lithographies representant des scenes et costumes Russes". - Each leaf mounted to modern stubs, some occasional spots, title-page slightly browned, and some of the impressions of the plates a bit weak, the colouring still very good. A very good copy, wholly untrimmed. Bobins Collection 195. Colas 1496. Hiler 448. WorldCat (7 copies). Cf. Lipperheide 1352f. (1821 ed.). For Houbigant see Thieme/Becker XVII, 554.

SIMOND (Louis)
2 vols. de front., X, 530; Paris, chez Treuttel et Würtz, 1817, in-8, 2 vols. de front, X, 530; front, 452 pp. avec 13 pl. et 2 tableaux dépliants, demi-basane, dos lisse, Seconde édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée. Simond émigra aux Etats-Unis avant la Révolution et dans cet ouvrage il compare l'Angleterre, l'Écosse et le Pays de Galles avec la France de l'ancien régime, rarement à l'avantage des premiers. Pendant son voyage, il resta avec Thomas de Quincey, écrivain de 'Confessions d'un mangeur d'opium anglais', qui le décrira comme un "thorough, knowing man of the world, keen, sharp as a razor, and valuing nothing but the tangible and the ponderable." Mors un peu fatigué, sinon bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Field, George).
London Printed for the author by Valpy and sold by Mr Newman, 1817. (29,5 x 24 cm). VIII, 57 (3) S. Mit koloriertem gestochenem Frontispiz, zahlreichen (1 ganzseitigen) meist kolorierten Textillustrationen und 4 kolorierten gestochenen Tafeln. Dekorativer moderner Halblederband im Stil der Zeit mit hübscher Rückenvergoldung. Erste Ausgabe seines seltenen Erstlingswerkes, einer Vorarbeit zu seinem 1835 erschienenen Hauptwerk. - Der englische Chemiker und Farbenfabrikant Field (1777-1854) beschäftigte sich ein Leben lang nicht nur praktisch mit Farben und Färben, sondern auch theoretisch mit ihren harmonischen Beziehungen. In vorliegendem Werk knüpft er an die Arbeiten von Le Blon an, indem er mit den drei subtraktiven Primärfarben Rot, Gelb und Blau operiert und sich bemüht, eine Farbharmonie in ästhetischer Analogie zur musikalischen Harmonielehre aufzustellen. Seine Theorien waren besonders für die Farbenlehre in der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts bedeutend, wurden jedoch nach den Theorien von Maxwell und Helmholtz obsolet, so schön sein Kompass der Farben auch ist. - Breitrandiges, nahezu fleckenfreies Exemplar in einem hübschen Einband. - Indergand, Bibl. de la couleur 254 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
